"Ozric Tentacles still inhabit that part of the sonic landscape where Gong rub shoulders with Jean-Michel Jarre." The Arts Desk

“Travelling The Great Circle is the new 80-page Hardback Book, offering for the first time, an in-depth view into one of the Ozric Tentacles most intensely creative spells. Containing the first four official studio albums, along with two bonus discs featuring ‘Demos & Rarities’ & ‘Live Underslunky’, all remastered by Ed Wynne, & live at the Fridge, Brixton, 1991 on DVD.
At the centre of this deluxe edition is a comprehensive book featuring original liner notes by Dominic Blake, words from Ed Wynne, Daevid Allen & Gong & rare, previously unseen photographs, rare content collected from band members old & new, personal artefacts from close associates of the band & new Erpmen drawn by Ed Wynne.
Delve into the Ozrics world with this collection showcasing a band in the ascent & at their most inspired. The creative vision of multi-instrumentalist Ed Wynne; ‘Pungent Effulgent’, ‘Erpland’, ‘Strangeitude’ & ‘Jurassic Shift’ are widely regarded by fans & critics alike as among the most important albums within the Ozrics’ rich catalogue & beyond it within the pantheon of psychedelic rock music.
Following the initial period of DIY cassette releases, the band formed their own label ‘Dovetail Records’ in 1989 with the release of their first “Official” album ‘Pungent Effulgent’. The album release combined with a busy touring schedule in the UK helped them gain an even wider following & catch the attention of the national music press. Albums ‘Strangeitude’ & ‘Jurassic Shift’ were received to critical acclaim & charted in the UK at numbers 70 & 11 respectively. Now, in 2021, Kscope is bringing together the first four studio albums for the first time in one package, along with a bonus disc of ‘Demos & Rarities’ hand-picked & remastered by Ed Wynne. 1991 live album ‘Live Underslunky’ is also included, which showcases the band in scintillating form. The Earbook is rounded off with a DVD featuring the band at the height of their powers, performing to a sold-out crowd at Brixton’s Fridge in 1991, along with various TV appearances from the era.

I don't have this box set....but really felt I needed to add to the description that the Fridge DVD (that I have on VHS) is an AMAZING show from the days when the band was very much wilder, and had a light show that sent you to another planet. The performances are HOT , and God bless you if you have seizure disorder ,because the lights were so disorienting during a show I saw early on that it was hard to move from one spot on the floor to the next! All together it was a mind-scrambling event....and I only had one drink and nothing else! Man, those were the days!
